RELIGION by ProQuest

VIEWS: 6 PAGES: 3

Accompanied by plenty of color photos, the short chapters cover history, beliefs, holy books and writings, worship, holidays, life cycle events, family life, and young adherents' viewpoints. Each double-page spread features some text in difficultto-read script accompanied by bucolic nature scenes: in "the valley of the shadow of death," a horse walks fearlessly past a vulture and a wolf. Bates's autumn-hued watercolor illustrations with visible sketch outlines are serviceable but undistinguished; Wilson's text features a soft, bland rhyme and lots of sensory details.\n After God creates the world, he makes humans to collect the powerful pieces of light that have escaped from a jar. Holt ISBN 978-0-8050-7894-7 $14.95 (3) PS A young Muslim boy describes the ways his family celebrates the holy month of Ramadan, explaining some of the rituals and symbols of the holiday.
